Car batteries are fundamental parts of both the charging and starting systems. Within the starting system, the role of the battery is to send a current of electricity to the starter so that the vehicle is able to start and run. In addition, the battery is responsible for supplying electricity to other electrical components, such as the radio and the internal and external lights when the demand exceeds the supply of the alternator or when the vehicle is off. Most vehicles use one battery, but vehicles with diesel engines, electric vehicles, or vehicles that run a 24-volt system may require two or more batteries to power their engines and electric systems. Currently, the SLI battery is a popular type of battery used in many vehicles. The letters, which stand for starting, lighting, and ignition, indicate the battery’s major functions. Overall, an automotive battery is an essential component in vehicles. Without a working battery, an engine will not start. As such, it is important for a driver to keep watch over battery life.
If you are having trouble starting your engine, visit us for a battery replacement service. We will determine if the battery is the cause of the problem and in need of replacement. In addition, our replacement service may be advisable even if your battery is currently working properly. Although new batteries generally perform well for the first three to five years before they are likely to malfunction, battery life can be shortened from extreme weather conditions or improper maintenance. Unless you have access to the right testing tools, there may be little warning that your battery needs to be replaced. Our staff has the necessary tools to review your battery’s performance. If our results indicate you need a replacement battery, we will help you through the replacement process. If you have questions or concerns about your battery, simply give us a call or contact us online.

What’s the difference between Repairs and Maintenance?
Repairs are services that are required or necessary when something on your vehicle is not working properly or may have worn to the point where a replacement is required to maintain the performance of your vehicle.
Maintenance is the routinely scheduled services, inspections and part replacements that your vehicle manufacturer recommends based on the age or mileage of your vehicle.
The schedule for performing these maintenance services varies from vehicle to vehicle. You will find the schedule for your vehicle in your owner's manual. Following this schedule is the best way to make sure your vehicle is performing as it should.
All BIG O Tire dealers in BC pride themselves on being able to provide the best customer service and the highest quality service work available anywhere. To support that, a service warranty on workmanship, service and/or parts is provided by each independent BIG O Tires dealership. These warranties vary from one aspect of our business to another - Tire warranties are different from Wheel warranties, and each of these differ from warranties on Service work performed during the course of a repair or maintenance on your vehicle. Ask your BIG O dealer at the time of purchase of these products and/or services what the warranty period is and what is covered under it.
